Toys For Tots


The DRMS BETA club, in partnership with the PE department will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for the less fortunate children this holiday season. All toys will be donated to the Toys for Tots Foundation.

Make a child smile this holiday season by bringing in a new, unwrapped toy that is $5.00 or more, and earn a ticket to the December 18th home basket ball game. This is a gesture you will not regret.

Please bring all toys to the Guidance department and be sure to talk to either Mrs. Deen or Mrs. Parks to have your name on the list for free entrance to the game. Your toy must be in by the end of the day December 17th to earn a free entrance to the game.
